6:40 am
now there could be degrees al head of it. -- drizzle ahead of it. the airport did dip to 39 before the clouds started to roll in. you can see how this is lifting up this way. and that really, the tail end just a continuous roll. a lot of clouds, more bark than bite unless up in the north bay. trace amounts to couple hundred hundredths. peninsula, south bay, maybe .50 towards the north bay. not a big system. clearing tonight and looks good for friday. clouds on the increase. rain starts in the north bay. and then fair to the south though. south bay for a while until probably after the noon hour. and then we will start to see the clouds and light rain make it. 50s or low 60s towards the north bay. mid-60s peninsula, east bay. also towards the south. and again towards the valley. some of these clouds will have sun for a while. and then the clouds will
